, but retains the revenue lines for the future. let's say obama care increased certain taxes. the ryan budget allowed that revenue. it does balance the budget in 10 years while his past did in 30 years. the balancing is key that the republicans are going to be pounding away for several months going toward the 2013 mid term elections. michael: hearing that, we listen to ryan, boehner i listen to what you're saying about obamacare you and i both know the reality that this is not going to pass the senate. what is this had muted ecstasy we are hearing out of ryan and boehner over this ryan budget passing and the government shutdown being averted? >> well, there's a lot of misconceptions about what these budgets are. they're largely political documents meant to set fort the vision of a party. they're not at all setting spending projections for the government. the is that the, the democrats in the senate are going to pass their own budget that has vastly different spending priorities and it basically allows the parties to put forth their vision for the future in front of the american people and the

think mr. obama could and should overcome whatever has made him hesitate. we in this country not only don't have a federal employment program, republicans and democrats have not even put it on the floor to debate it as an important issue, even though it comes out of our own history. i say put our people to work. they want to work. the federal reserve says 20% of our factory and office space is sitting unused. we have people who want to work, the tools, equipment, and raw materials for them to work with. lord knows we need the wealth that they could produce. put them to work and make it a national issue. >> where does the money come from? >> roosevelt went to the wealthy and corporations and said to them, "you must give me the money to take care of the massive people because if you don't, we're going to have a catastrophe in this country. we're going to have a social revolution." my argument is, let's go back to the same tax rates that roosevelt imposed, or at least in that neighborhood, which is much higher on wealthy people and much higher on corporations than we have today. that is
controlled senate passed a federal budget doctor president obama's tenure. it has no chance of passing the gop house. it was passed at 5:00 a.m. saturday morning by 50-49. four democrats voted against it and one abstained. republicans wasted no time in attacking it. according to a statement by senator jeff sessions, the content of the plan, the majority has now approved demonstrates why they were unwilling to revile it for so long. as the budget wars wage on, president obama is expected to sign a resolution this week to keep the government funded throughout september. that locks into place the much-hated and did he say speed sequester, meaning there will be a lot of pain to go along with the sure to be drown out budget process. lets bring in robert reich his best selling e book, beyond outrage is now available in paper back. it is required reading. welcome back to the show. >> good evening. >> how big a deal is it that the senate democrats actually passed a budget for the first tile in four years? >> i think it's very important symbolically. the democrats have been talking about a budg
the way mccain did in 2008 election when someone accused obama of being a muslim. he shot back. >> john: admirablebly. >> the hope is you knock them down immediately or question and be critical. that's not what happened here. immediately apologized on his behalf. >> republicans really start to reach across the aisle as reince priebus stated today trying to get latino-americans coming over to the g.o.p. where do the racist whack jobs go. >> thisthe cpac would have killed for this panel. you're looking at minorities, women. this is what they're killing for right now they can't get it because it's not just a label. it's kind of to the core. it's not a label problem. it's their thing. that's what they do. which i think means they should maybe embrace another party. if the g.o.p. is trying to be mainstream. if the g.o.p. is really trying to have a presidential nominee that actually americans can elect, maybe can i just be the guy who says we should have a multi party system that can have a party that has room for the nut jobs? >> john: listen, i think it's great. the worse thing about politi
obamacare, which was the central issue the last campaign where you remember president obama was re-elected, the senate went even more democratic, and the house democrats gained seats and won over a million more votes than the republicans. normal people would think that the obamacare issue might be settled. does anybody realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republ
of the job that president obama is doing compared to 50% who disapprove. his net approval rating has dropped 15 percentage points since january. now, despite his recent outreach to republicans, 56% believe the president's not doing enough to cooperate with a full 70% thinking the gop is not reaching out. that matches an all-time high. as far as the budget goes, only 31% say they approve of how the president is handling how government raises and spends money. >> wow. >> just 19% support the way congressional republicans are dealing with it. and it was nearly split. 47% sided with the president, 46% sided with republicans, and i wonder, joe, if this is at least inspiration enough for them to just get a deal. is anyone going to get worse than this? really? why can't they at least get something done. >>> i think politically the pressure is more on the president for this reason. you go -- you ask somebody -- it's kind of like lawyers. i found that everybody hated lawyers, right? >> yep. everybody loves their own lawyer. you should have seen what she did in court. man, let me give you my lawyer's

the aisle, president obama and the senate, to commit to the same commonsense goal. the 2014 house republican budget sets a responsible precedent by ensuring our government lived within its means. just like millions of americans across this country, just like my constituents back in north carolina. i hear from them every day and they ask me why can't the federal budget be balanced. why can't washington get its spending under control. this proposal sets real, practical goals that will stop spending money we don't have, fix a broken tax code, protects and strengthens important priorities like medicare and national security, reforms welfare programs like medicaid, so it can deliver on the promises to deliver to those who are in most need. it also does repeal the president's health care plan. and it puts in place and allows aos put in place real sensible patient-centered reforl for health care. the house republican budget reduces the deficit by $4.6 trillion over the next 10 years. this budget offers a plan to expand opportunity and create jobs. while not sufficient by themselves, policy reforms
the much-debated ryan budget with ten republicans voting no. the plan promises deep spending cuts to entitlement programs, a sticking point for democrats. however, congressman ryan and speaker boehner wasted no time on the house floor pointing fingers at president obama for the budget standstill. >> the president has an opportunity during this critical debate to come forward and to help make this part of his legacy like it has become part of the clinton legacy. >> he gets his ncaa bracket in on time, but still no budget. >> mike, good day to you. third time the house is voting on the ryan budget. you have house speaker boehner giving his reading. what is different this time around, especially when it comes to the politics of it all? >> i'll tell you, alex, there's something remarkable going here in congress. not only is there passionate debate, there is finger pointing going on back and forth. that goes without saying on capitol hill. but it's followed by actual votes in the house and in the senate. let's starts with the positive here. at least there's one positive aspect to this.

agrees the debt is not crushing the life out of america. but the problem for republicans is they have insisted that the debt is the reason we need to do the kind of draconian budget cutting they have been proposing since president obama won the white house back for democrats. and look what happens to the conservative rationale for budget can you tell us when conservatives get more honest about the debt and deficit. a conservative columnist says about the new ryan budget, it sacrificed seriousness for seriousness by promising to reach budgetary balance, not over the long term as budgets 1.0 and 2.0 did, but in a ten year window. this is not going to happen, and more importantly there's no reason why it needs to happen. modest deficits are perfectly compatible with fiscal responsibility. talk about singing a new tune. and the conservative think tank, the american enterprise institute asks why does the budget need to balance in ten years? debt reduction doesn't require balance, just that the economy is growing faster than the debt, while the plan does put the debt to gdp ratio on a downw

on the right? when does the political calculus change for republicans on gay marriage? >> i don't think it's going to change. if you look at the exit polls that i alluded to earlier, three-quarters of obama voters said they were for same-sex marriage. three-quarters of romney voters said they were not. so there are people in the democratic party who, you know, support traditional marriage. i thought it was really interesting, by the way, this week. i thought it was politico went to a lot of the red state democratic senators on the ballot in 2014. people like mark pryor of arkansas and others, mary landrieu in louisiana. they haven't changed their position, and i still think the republican party is going to remain a pro-family, pro-marriage, pro-life party. i don't think that will change. and if it does, by the way, i think the big tent will become a pup tent. if you look at the data, 44% of all the votes mitt romney got last november were from self-identified evangelicals. >> but ironically, again, romney's data analyst suggests that the republicans and independents who voted for the presi

and then a press conference to announce it. >> it is unusual. it's unique, but by the same token, the republican party is in a bit of a bind. they have lost the popular vote in four out of the last five presidential elections. and president obama i think even president obama's top aides would say was imminently beatable last november and yet he really trounced mitt romney. so in addition to the messaging problem that the republican party clearly has, there's also a demographic problem that they face and that's why you had the soul searching. it was necessary not only to reassure the party activists, but also i think to get donors reassured, as well. there was a risk there that some people were going to stop giving money to the republican party. >> when i talked to ari fleischer in our last hour, he said the message that we have to have is that it's a big tent and here's what he said. >> both parties have these issues. for the republican party, what it means is that republicans need to adhere to our conservative message, our conservative core, but do so in a way that invites other people to join

of the politicianstor politicians ahead of the people on this? >> you could argue it either way. barack obama announced his support for gay marriage after the lines had crossed in the public level. after a majority of americans tipped in that direction. i think when you look at the republican party and what this segment talked about, the changes in the republican party and people like rob portman, those are the minority views within that party. republican views on this issue nationwide have been fairly stable. only about a quarter of remembers tell us they support gay marriage so in some ways some of these republican politicians are arguably ahead whereof the rest of their party is in that direction of that change. >> ifill: greg lewis, is it possible these surveys we're looking at don't pick up a silent majority perhaps who could still oppose gay marriage? >> there's really no evidence of that. we've never seen that once public opinion shifts towards gay rights on any issue that it drops back for any length of time. also it appears that our estimates based on the polls of how much support there for ga

battle. president obama's pick to be labor secretary is assistant secretary, actually assistant attorney general tom perez. perez played a big role in the justice department's channels to voter i.d. laws in texas, passed by republicans with the hope of cushing minority voting obviously. republicans already have their knives out for perez. senator jeff sessions of alabama called his pick unfortunate and needlessly divisive. we had never used a contractor before and didn't know where to start. at angie's list, you'll find reviews on everything from home repair to healthcare written by people just like you. no company can pay to be on angie's list, so you can trust what you're reading. angie's list is like having thousands of close neighbors where i can go ask for personal recommendations. that's the idea. before you have any work done, check angie's list. from roofers to plumbers to dentists and more, angie's list -- reviews you can trust. i love you, angie. sorry, honey. >>> oh, bloomberg's not around. our big gulp's safe. we're cool. shoot, it's just pop. with low cal ice cubes in it. i
